Upcoming iPhone 16 models could come with an additional button, according to Weibo leaker Instant Digital, who has shared specific details about Apple’s plans in the past. Instant Digital says there’s a “high chance” of getting an additional button, with Apple also planning to move the mmWave antenna to the left of the device instead of the right to accommodate the change.
The iPhone 16 Pro action button will be expected to be flush with the device, as Apple is expected to move to solid-state technology for the button rather than the current standard button design.
Although changes are expected on the action button, the volume and power keys would remain the same without any changes. These buttons are not solid state at the moment, although Apple’s plans could change.
The information shared by Instant Digital echoes the details that MacRumors published at the end of September highlighting the additional button that should come to the iPhone 16. Apple calls this button the “capture button” internally, but it’s still unclear exactly what it will be used for. The button will be located below the power button on the right side of the device and it will be a capacitive button rather than a standard button.
We also previously discussed repositioning the mmWave antenna in the space below the volume buttons and adopting solid-state technology for the action button. Our sources reported that the new button is expected to be introduced on all iPhone 16 models, including the base iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Plus models.
